In the light of what is currently taken place globally I thought that the timing was right for me to update you on what is currently happening around our urbanisation, with particular emphasis on security.

Since the issue of our half yearly newsletter we the committee continue to try and police as best we can our community areas. We have found that more than ever before visitors who have no right to be in possession of community keys have them. That we are finding an influx of individuals seeking entrance to our areas whether it is for legitimate business or otherwise, (otherwise seems to be the case).

You should be aware that these individuals rarely have any form of identification and in most instances choose not to be able to speak english or understand the language.

I am currently reviewing all forms of security on the urbanisation, from presdestrian gates, veh gates, perimeter walls etc and those areas of vunerability. It might well be that some changes will have to be made straight away, but this will only be with the best interests of both property owners and the urbanisation. Please bear with us on this one. The subject of security will undoubtedly be high on the next AGM agenda.

We all have a responsibility not only to ourselves but to our neighbours to keep our urbanisation safe. I strongly urge you to be vigilant at all times, approach suspicious individuals cautiously and should you have any concerns or doubts report the matter to myself or a member of the committee at the earliest oppurtunity. The mesage is that we cannot be to complacent when it comes to security.

Lastly, I send this bulletin to you as a reminder of what can and is happening around us, but more importantly to ask you to play your part with us the committee to ensure we all have tranquility and peace particularly over the coming festive and new year periods. All remains now is for us to wish you a very merry xmas and a prosperous new year.

Your President

Helene Akerman - Presidenta CLARO

Dear All,
Let me introduce myself a bit, as a picture doesn’t always tell the story.
My name is Helene Akerman; I am Swedish but lived in England for many years. I am a mother of two boys, speak 4 languages and came here to Orihuela Costa in 2013 to do my placement year abroad while studying for a BA Honors in Spanish and French. I fell in love with the place but was appalled at how disregarded and neglected this beautiful area was.
I joined CLARO in 2014 and was on their candidate list as no 12, but unfortunately at that time it wasn’t to be and we fell short of 30 votes to get a representative in the Orihuela Town Hall.  
I am now the first female president of CLARO and I am on a mission. In simple terms, little to nothing has changed in Orihuela Costa in the last 4 years. Basic services are not up to standard i.e. roads and general maintenance and rubbish collection, (SUMA tax) in a neglectful state, Public services like CDM being given to private contractors putting extortionate prices not within affordability for young families and pensioners, still no Emergency Centre, no police service, fire and ambulance service appropriate for the amount of people that live here, multicultural auditorium etc.. the list goes on and on. 
More than anything, I’d like to encourage people who can vote to do so.. it’s important and on a local level things can change with the right intentions. 
So, if you'd like, I’d be happy to come and speak to you? You can email me personally and I’d be happy to help. Help you with the voting process, help you answer any questions you might have etc.. I, like you, want to better this beautiful place we live in, and if I get the opportunity, I will do my best. 
My email is This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., on Facebook you find me on CLARO (politico).
Please let me know if I can help, if you want me to come and have a brief talk about the issues that concern where you live. 
Kind regards, 
Helene Akerman
Presidenta CLARO
